Are you one of those who find it challenging to find the right size of the mirror over your makeup table or dresser? Are you looking for the perfect proportion? If yes, this article can help you.
Although there is no right or wrong in choosing the best mirror size over a makeup table, this is a good start in finding the right match.
Below are some tips to enlighten you in finding an ideal size of a mirror over a vanity makeup table.
5 Ways to Choose the Right Size of Mirror Over a Makeup Table
1. 60-75% wide- the mirror is about 60-75% of the table width.
One simple way you can follow is to make sure that the mirror is about 60-75% of the table width. With this proportion, it can give enough space on both sides for your accessories or vanity collection - giving a perfect balance.
For example, for a 31.5" x 23.6"- Hollywood Pro Vanity Mirror with Bluetooth Speaker, if we follow the rule of 60-75% of table width, we can find that the ideal size of the table can have a width of about: 42”-52”. So, if you found a 52” wide table, you can see that a 31.5” vanity mirror can be a right match.
You still have plenty of space to add your vanity collection or accessories on the sides. It’s pretty awesome right!
2. Less than an inch – the mirror is at least an inch lesser than your makeup desk width.
A great way to play with space is to have a mirror that is about one to five inches smaller on both sides than the total width of your makeup table. So, if you have an existing table, you have to measure the overall width and then add like an inch on both sides.
For example, if you’ve got a 33.5”or 34” wide table, we recommend you to have a 31.5” wide Hollywood vanity mirror.
The small gap creates a difference.
Also, if you’ve got a smaller space and only have about 25-28” wide table, you can find that 22.8” Hollywood Iconic vanity mirror can go well with it.
3. The rule of thirds - The mirror is one-third of the overall width of the table.
One creative rule that you can follow is having the mirror width of about one-third of the total table width. So, it’s like following the rule of thirds – making the mirror the centerpiece. Also, this is a creative way of matching your makeup mirror over your table.
For example, when you have fallen in love with our Fenchilin Hollywood Slim Vanity Mirror which is about 14.5”, so to find an ideal table size, we will just multiply it by 3. So, we find that the 43.5 inches or 43 inches wide table is proportionate, but you may also play around 40-45 inches wide.
It is indeed picture perfect!
4. The perfect fit – both the mirror and the table have the same width.
When it comes to the latest trend of vanity mirrors and tables, you can observe that both mirror and makeup table has the same width. It showcases the mirror size that perfectly fits the table size.
For example, if you have a 31.5” wide makeup mirror it is perfectly fine to use a table with the same width.
The union creates a perfect vanity set.
5. Opposite attracts – adding a smaller mirror to a wider table.
The idiomatic expression that says “opposite attracts” can also be a fun way to follow when choosing an ideal mirror size.
If you wanted a unique way of highlighting your table or mirror, you can go with a smaller mirror added on a wider table. But, make sure that it serves its purpose like, if you want to use it only for your beauty routines like putting on your makeup, it can turn out well. However, if you're fond of checking your outfit of the day (OOTDs), it is better to choose a wider mirror.
For example, for a standard size makeup table of 45” wide, the 11.8” Hollywood Glow Vanity Mirror can also go well. You may even find the 7.28” makeup mirror a cool piece to add.
There’s no wrong to try smaller mirror over a wider table especially when it’s a Hollywood vanity mirror – feel like a star!
As mentioned earlier, there’s right or wrong in choosing the right size of the mirror. You can still experiment. The rule mentioned above is just the perfect starting guide, especially when you find it challenging to see the right match. It can also serve as your inspiration. We hope that it can lighten up your day and be stress-free when choosing your new vanity makeup mirror over your makeup table.
